SAA Martin Smyth
SAA Martin rang the bell and called the meeting to order at 1.00pm.

President Edward Naus
President Edward welcomed members, IPP Gerrit ten Veen from RC Bali Canggu, and particularly welcomed (back) Rtns Christine and David who have been on leave for nearly 2 months. Welcome back! :-)

Rtn. David Lang
Rtn David briefly reviewed their trip to South Australia, and advised that he and Christine had found time to visit RC Glenelg, where they were able to exchange Rotary banners and leave behind a memento of their visit. He thanked the Club for the summary information about the RC Bali Nusa Dua programs, which was helpful in giving RC Glenelg an appreciation of the range of activities we undertake.

PP Karl-Heinz Schmelzer
Treasurer Karl-Heinz briefly summarised the Club’s financial position, and advised the meeting that around 40% of the TRF Recognition Points available to Club Members at a “discount” of 50% had been taken, but that 60% remained. He expressed the hope that members would provide the needed support to the Club by taking advantage of this special offer.

He then provided a brief summary of the status of the Global Grant application currently being prepared, noting that it is not an easy process, and the inevitable delays will delay its start until at least early February. In turn, this means that the need to extend the “bridging program” will require additional funding, which increases the budgetary pressures we are already facing.

Rtn. Hugh Brown
Secretary Hugh then presented a brief summary of matters discussed at the Board Meeting held earlier in the morning. Most matters dealt with were ones of process, with the only significant item of New Business being the discussions round the 25th Anniversary RCBND Gala Dinner, agreed by the Board to be proposed for Saturday February 3rd 2018. It was agreed that Henny Udy would chair the Committee to be established, which would include all members of the Fundraising Committee.

Visiting Rtn Gerrit ten Veen
IPP Gerrit ten Veen from RC Bali Canggu made a presentation about low-cost Nazava water filters, being promoted by the local supplier (Social Impakt) as being very suitable to assist the Gunung Agung Disaster Relief program. The local supplier is promoting a crowd-funding campaign to supply as many as 1,300 water filters to villages and schools in the Karangasem area. It was noted that the Club has already committed remaining funds to the District Relief Program, and no longer has any capacity to provide funding assistance to new initiatives at this stage.

President Edward Naus
President Edward advised that he would be absent on an overseas trip for around 3 weeks from 13th October.

Raffle tickets of IDR 650,000 were sold and President Edward won a nice bottle of red wine donated by Debra. Edward and other past winners owing prizes are reminded not to forget to make their contributions at forthcoming meetings.

Another fine meeting…. (no fines were levied today).

There being no other business President Edward thanked everyone for joining today and bid everyone farewell for a few weeks. The bell was rung and the meeting adjourned at 2:00p.m.
